2 stars First of all, let's me say that I am happy that I was able to pick up this LP for a song. Second, I will say that the seeds of Eloy's sounds are all present here. Third, I will ask why no one else at PA has picked up on some of the early Nektar albums for comparisons. Now onto my brief review - AS many have noted, the music here is jammy, still somewhat psych influenced. I hear some organ riffs nicked from Uriah Heep, I hear some spacey sniffs of Meddle era Floyd. But I don't hear anything that made me want to keep the album. True, it does point the way for what Eloy played afterwards. I was going to do a more "song by song" overview, but then I feel that the above brief reflects my thoughts. TO summarize - if you love Eloy's later albums, you'll like this one. If you found Nektar & Meddle Pink Floyd to your liking, then this album will also likely appeal to you. But the PA rating, to my ears, is a bit much for an average album. And this is after 4 good listens in the past week. And each time, not much stuck in my head. At best, if I can get $2-3 back in cash or trade, I'll be happy. THere are still one or two later Eloy LPs still there (I picked up Ocean & Dawn, they're next in line for listening time).
